A WOMAN BEATING A MAN.
_______
 
A COMPLICATED ASSAULT CASE.
 
 
    Yesterday, (Friday), at a Maryport  Police Court, Mary RITSON, wife of an
innkeeper at Crosby, was summoned for  assaulting Thomas McKAY, butcher,
Allerby, on the 14th inst.
 
    A cross summons charged McKAY with  assaulting Mrs. RITSON, and a further
charge was preferred by McKAY against  Robert RITSON, for assaulting him on
the 11th October.
 
    When the cases were called, Mr. J. C.  NICHOLSON, who appeared on behalf
of Mr. McKAY, said he had arranged that the  case should be settled without
coming before the Bench.
 
    Mr. HEWETSON said he appeared for Mr.  and Mrs. RITSON, and, with the
permission of the Bench, he would withdraw the  summonses. Mr. NICHOLSON and
himself had come to an arrangement which would be  satisfactory to the parties.
 
    The Bench allowed the summonses to be  withdrawn.
